Moderator's note: This thread is for asking about and sharing information about how one becomes an agency model ... how agencies work, how you get paid, what they are looking for. However ... we do not allow posting of personal infomation, stats,sizes, pictures, etc. for feedback about your suitability to be a model. Per our Community Rules, weight talk is not allowed in this thread, even if it is pertinent to your modeling career. Only agencies can determine your suitability to model and that is who you should share your information with. We will edit and/or delete posts with personal infomation or pictures or if you are asking for a critique. How does one do this? Do you just show up at the doorstep of an agency? Wait for a scout to spot your incredible beauty in some obscure place and beg you to come model for them ? Send pictures in? Does anyone have the addresses of well known modeling agency's? How many and what kind of pictures do you send in? Do they have to be taken by a pro, or can they just be snapshots? What other info do you need to send with them? What are agencies really looking for? I mean, they have a ton of beautiful thin girls dying to model for them. What's the deciding factor? Does anyone on here work "behind the scenes" in the modeling world? I'm so curious.
